We are now open for limited shopping and for members to work at the studio by appointment. We are offering mosaic kits for you to work at home.
Current Hours: every day 12-6pm for member appointments and for up to two shoppers at a time, plus mosaic drop-offs and pick-ups. It’s always best to call before stopping by.
These are impossible times. There is just so much suffering, injustice and anxiety. Everything is uncertain. We are all challenged to make such complicated decisions and choices as we try to navigate risk and responsibility.
We have no answers and no words of wisdom.We remain inspired by the community around us and the daily acts of kindness and courage. We do know that there is indeed something healing or calming about cutting glass into small pieces and putting them back together. It is simple and yet it is powerful.
COVID has forced us to be creative in ways that we can offer mosaics for people. Our kits so far have been so well received. It is incredible to see some what beauty even complete beginners create. More importantly, people have been finding it very helpful. Here is what one friend said of her experience:
“Thank you so much for the beautiful mosaic mandala garden stone. I have loved the process of creating the mosaic, and the way you complete the process and beautify the whole thing is amazing. You all do such amazing, quality work and it’s been such a pleasure interacting with you all at each step.
Keep up the great, important work you do. You provide such a helpful service right now. To have a creative expression and a focused, grounded way to be in the world is certainly helping me stay resilient while I consciously choose how to spend my time.“
Space to design, space to get messy and space to be in community as you work
- Become a member: Join our studio even as a complete “mosaic novice.” Work at your own pace and learn the steps as you go with one-on-one instruction.
- Take a class: If you prefer learning in a scheduled class-like setting we offer everything from easy starter classes that give you a taste of the process, all the way through to advanced intensive workshops for professional mosaic artists.
- Independent Study: An alternative to membership, day passes give folks familiar with our studio (previous class or SMA experience required) the opportunity to work independently at the studio, with full access to tools and materials.
- Host a party or event: Our studio is a lovely space to gather with friends and coworkers. It is a great way to celebrate a birthday or special event as well as team building events.
- Mosaics to go: Parties, auctions, fundraisers – whatever you can imagine we can put together in custom mosaic packages of all sizes for all ages
- Tiles and Supplies: We have hundreds of gorgeous glass and ceramic tiles in every style and color. Like a kid in a candy store, you can pick and choose as much or as little of any type. We also sell all basic tools and supplies mosaics.
- Custom Designed Mosaics: SMA Studios, the production arm of Seattle Mosaic Arts, creates custom architectural and fine art mosaics for personal and commercial use.
- Options for Kids: In general, our studio is geared to adults. Children over 12 are welcome with adult supervision. Several Sundays a month we make the studio safe from shards of glass and welcome younger artists to come with an adult to make mosaics in the studio space. Price varies per project. See our upcoming schedule Kid-Friendly Hours. We also offer party kits and other take home projects for your young artists to design at home and bring back for us to cement and grout.
